To base itself on archaeology in order to rethink our ways of living together in one environment: Such is the editorial line of Archéopages, a scientific journal with a review panel. Each issue develops a specific theme by crossing the points of view of archaeologists of all backgrounds and those of other researchers in human sciences, thus taking stock of the recent contributions of archaeology to the knowledge of societies. A large space is also devoted to modern methods of archaeology. The journal is aimed at researchers, students and enlightened amateurs.

Archéopages n° 39 : <i>Le sort des vaincus</i>

The actions inflicted by the victors on the defeated are exerted on the bodies: confinement, killings, treatment of corpses ... But also on the goods: total or partial destruction of weapons, objects or habitats, and appropriation of places.
